Guidelines on Childrens Reintegration
These Guidelines provide a framework for anyone seeking to ensure family care for children. Children outside of family care face significant disadvantages; they may experience developmental impairments and lasting psychological harm,
be less likely to attend or do well in school and be cut off from the social networks they need to flourish in adulthood. Maximum efforts should therefore be made to reintegrate the millions of children globally who are currently separated back into their families and communities. Despite the importance of family reintegration, to date, solid guidance for safe and effective reintegration is limited. These guidelines attempt to fill this gap. They explore cross-cutting principles of good practice in children’s reintegration, and provide guidance on programme design for work with children, families, schools and communities.
